Don't Forget Joy Division Reading this Sunday at Barbes

Hey kids-
Just a reminder that this Sunday March 1st at 7pm is the last (for now) installment of the now famous 33 1/3 Multimedia Reading Series at Barbes in Brooklyn.

If you haven't made it out for one of these yet, now is a good time to remedy that grave error. This one is definitely not to be missed.

Here's what you have to look forward to:

Chris Ott- Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures
Since the publication of Chris Ott's Contiuum 33 1/3 title Unknown Pleasures, the music and image of Joy Division has been commercialized in unimaginable ways. Dramatized in two separate major motion pictures, and co-opted by corporations diverse as Microsoft, Converse, and Urban Outfitters, Joy Division have evolved from their status as a jealously-guarded underground touchstone to become ubiquitous as today's most extroverted pop stars. "Where Will it End", a new essay from Chris Ott tackling this transformation, will be presented March 1st at Barbès Brooklyn, accompanied by audio and film clips. A Q&A session will follow.
